Leading the team in tackles once again was Chris Borland, who racked up seven tackles, including a team-high two for a loss as he helped shut down Purdue's ground game.
Borland also had a huge sack of Purdue quarterback Robert Marve at the end of the first half to help end any threat of the Boilermakers scoring and to give the Badgers a boost of confidence heading into the break.
It was vintage Borland, who also recovered the blocked punt from Beau Allen. Go figure.
The only knock you could make on Borland was that he was involved in coverage on Purdue's 52-yard pass play that set up its first score, although it didn't appear to be his fault.
Also with two tackles in the Purdue backfield, Mike Taylor recorded five tackles, two of which combined in a total of 14 yards of lost yardage.
Proceeding Borland's sack was the sack of Taylor's, which pushed Purdue back to the 45-yard line, out of field goal range. Another stellar performance for the two studs at linebacker for Wisconsin.
While Armstrong only tallied two tackles against Purdue, he injured his right leg in the fourth quarter and was on crutches after the game.
However, he was moving without crutches on Sunday, according to Jeff Potrykus of jsonline.com, which could be a sign that he will be good to go next week against Minnesota.
